There really should be a 12 step program for new gardeners. Moderation.... moderation.... get your feet wet before plunging in...!
Yesterday I dropped by one of the larger nurseries in my area to get some fertilizer.... just fertilizer (because Lowe's was sadly lacking in selection) and just had to stroll through and see the beautiful plants. I came home with fertilizer (at least I remembered what I went for!), a Gretel Eggplant, a Plumeria, and 3 packets of seed... What can I say? I'm a sucker for eggplants, and these are soooooo cute.
And since I can't have a tropical vacation for a while, I will have to settle for just the fragrance of the Plumeria to get me through until I can be whisked away to paradise!
Well, tonight is Lilith Fair, so planting will have to get put off for another day...although I did promise a trip to the zoo.... so maybe another 2 days!
